Contrary to what many reviews have stated, the historical period depicted in the film is not Sherman's March to the Sea (aka the Savannah Campaign) of the winter of 1864, but the Carolinas Campaign during the spring of 1865. See more »
Three women left alone in the South of the United States by the end of the Civil War, doesn't it sound familiar to you? For me, certainly yes. I thought of Don Siegel's THE BEGUILED, shot in 1970 and starring Clint Eastwood. For the rest, except this setting, the story is a little different and also the acting and directing. This movie has not been released in France and I understand why, although it is unfair, because more obscure films are shown in theatres in Paris. But this feature is not for wide audiences, especially with unknown actors and actresses. And the story so rough and brutal too. Anyway, I was Lucky enough to find the DVD, and I don't regret it. We can also class this film as a Home Invading one, a scheme so common since a decade now. A very good independent movie which I highly recommend.
